Wesley Dominant in Poll

Another week, another dominant performance from No. 4 Wesley (Del.) in the AFCA Division III Coaches’ Poll. The Wolverines have deligently put together an impressive resume with their season so far, most recently dispatching then-No. 23 Rowan (N.J.), 38-25, during a weekend that saw several Top 25 teams fall.

  Plenty of other teams were prepared to take advantage of the openings this week, as the Poll welcomed four new faces: No. 19 Olivet (Mich.); St. Norbert (Wis.) and Western New England (Mass.) tied at No. 21; No. 23 Salisbury (Md.); and Cortland State returns to the rankings at the No. 25 spot. This is the first time both Olivet and Western New England have ever been ranked in the Poll. This coming weekend will see two major match-ups as No. 2 Mary Hardin-Baylor (Texas) will travel to face resurgent No. 12 Hardin-Simmons (Texas) and No. 17 Concordia-Moorhead (Minn.) will host No. 6 St. Thomas (Minn.).
